Spiritual Gifts Test

I just came across an interesting site on the internet. A site letting you test for spiritual gifts. A test to determine just what spiritual gifts you were born with or given by God. I am about to let you in on a huge secret. A secret that if you really think about it you have always deep down known. There is no need for a spiritual gifts test. A spiritual gifts test would do you absolutely no good what so ever.

Why is that?

Because you already have access to every spiritual gift you could ever want.

What do I mean by that?

You don’t need a spiritual gifts test because you already have all the gifts.

Impossible you say?

No! Just reality!

Whatever you want to do…you don’t need a spiritual gift test to find out you can do it.

Whatever you want to be…you don’t need a spiritual gift test to find out you can be it.

You have access to become anything and everything you want to be. Yes even without a spiritual gifts test.

The result of a spiritual gifts test doesn’t matter. Age doesn’t matter. Race doesn’t matter. Social class doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you want it. You are only limited by the limitations you set on yourself with your mind.

So how do you access these spiritual gifts?

You access the spiritual gifts with your mind.

Whatever you want to be…create a vivid picture in your mind of you becoming just that.

Whatever you want to do…create a vivid picture in your mind of you doing just that.

Then go out and do it. You will probably be terrible at first. You might not even have a clue what you are doing. But keep doing it.

Find books, internet sites, people, anything that can help you learn more about what you want to be…what you want to do. Learn everything you can about what you want to do. Watch as the image in your mind changes. You will change to. You will suddenly find yourself getting better at what you do.
Each change will just seem to come all of a sudden. It will be as if you have taken a quantum leap and you just realize you are a little better at doing what you are trying to do. So keep doing it.

Now here is the key. Don’t limit yourself with your mind. Don’t make false assumptions as to how far you can increase your new found skill. The only limit to how far you can go is the limit you place on yourself with your mind.

Yes, you heard me right. You can be just as good as anyone who ever lived at anything. You can be the best piano player who ever lived, the best guitar player who ever lived, the best singer who ever lived. Just don’t limit yourself.

Just keep doing it. And yes you are getting better because you are practicing. But don’t limit how far the practice can take you because there are no limits.

Again you will see your increases in skill in as quantum leaps. It’s like one minute you couldn’t do it. The next it becomes easy and you wonder why in the world you used to not be able to do it.

How do I know all this?

I have never had a spiritual gifts test to tell me what I could or couldn’t do.

And even without a spiritual gifts test I have been able to play the piano, play the guitar, and sing all on a professional level and I have never had a single lesson in my life.

So forget the spiritual gifts test. Just decide what you want to become. Keep that image in you mind. Now start doing it!
